MALEFICARUM (ITALY)


Maleficarum roots belong to early 1992, when Danny Cinicolo lead guitarist of the historic Italian Thrash/Death Band "EXCIDIUM" decides to create a new project band with members from other Italian bands. So he starts to compose new music and search for the band members. Danny contacts his friend Andrea Zanetti, vocals on "ICONOCLAST" and Andrea is very glad to be part of the project. So together they decide to contact Giovanni Grifoni the drummer of "ANGEL DEATH" and ask him if he would like to play with MALEFICARUM. Giovanni likes the idea and starts to rehearse with the band. On the bass, Danny asks his old friend and band member of EXCIDIUM, Gianni Caralla to complete the line-up and so after only one year the band comes out with their first Demo "UNBLESSED" that soon gets a great success and a distribution deal in Europe by "MORBID NOISE PRODUCTIONS", and in U.S.A. by "WILD RAGS". “UNBLESSED” sells thousands of copies in Europe and in the U.S.A. getting a lot of interest in the underground scene and after a few months the band gets contacted by "DEFILED RECORDS U.S.A." for a record deal!! Their first Album "ACROSS THE HEAVENS" comes out with this label in 1995 and is considered one of the best Italian death album of the year. Unfortunatly the band members get big problems with their personal work and so they’re not able to play live and to continue the band project, so for a lot of years Maleficarum remain only an incomplete project.
